  5. My baby brother, words totally fail me. I was just talking to you and I had no idea it was goodbye and in instead said, “love you, talk soon”. The tears will subside but my heart will remain broken until I see you again. I wish I could have been with your family today, they are all I have left of you. You were a wonderful brother and a great man. Fly high little brother, hold Julie tight and we will be together again one day.

  6. My baby Brother words fail me, gone way too soon. We spoke recently but I never knew it should have been goodbye, instead of, “love you, talk soon”.
    The tears will stop eventually but the heartbreak will remain. I wish I could be with your family today and just reflect on what a wonderful human you have always been. Hold Julie tight once again, much love little bro, fly high and we will meet again.
    Geraldine, Les and families.
